Genetics and Lung Disease

There is a genetic form of lung disease called Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.  It can be detected with a simple, free confidential blood test which involves having your finger pricked and drops of blood put on a special test kit and mailed to a lab for analysis.  Treatment for this genetic form of lung disease is different from the treatment of people without this genetic condition.

The National Heart Lung Blood Institute funded COPDGene.org study to find out more about genetics and COPD, by studying 10,000 people at 21 clinical sites throughout the U.S.  More information is available here:

SECTION 4 – Medications

There are lots of different medications currently available and more in research and pending approval.  Taking medications regularly as directed is an important part of staying as healthy and active as possible.  Be sure to work closely with your prescribing healthcare provider and pharmacist to have any questions about your medications answered, so you are taking your medicines as effectively as possible.  Keep a diary to note any possible reactions, improvements, problems that may be connected with any of your medications; summarize and share the information with your healthcare provider.  Periodically demonstrate how you take your medications to your healthcare providers and/or pharmacist, to be sure you’re getting as much as possible from your treatments.  Also included is information about spacers, which can be used with many inhalers and help reduce side effects and improve delivery of medicine.

SECTION 5 – Exercise

“Use it or lose it,” definitely applies to those of patients with lung conditions.  The more patients do, the more they CAN continue to do.  Conditioned muscles use oxygen much more efficiently than deconditioned muscles.  Resources on safely exercising to remain as active and healthy as follow are below.  Work with your healthcare provider to be sure to exercise safely.  Ask about whether referral to a physical therapist or other specialist can help you regain conditioning and develop a personalized exercise plan or program.  There are many exercise programs available at low and no cost in the community; check around to see what works best.

SECTION 6 – Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a comprehensive program which covers educating patients and caregivers about COPD and how to live active and healthy lives with COPD.  It covers a large range of subjects including treatments, medications, infections, exercise, nutrition, feelings, and other topics.  It is reimbursed by many insurers and Medicare and Medicaid.  Unfortunately there are very few programs in our state and nation.  Materials here are useful to use in connection with your healthcare provider, to develop a customized plan for yourself and loved one.

SECTION 7 – Oxygen

Supplemental oxygen can be a useful treatment for patients whose lungs are not able to provide enough oxygen using room air.  Oxygen is delivered in several different forms, and it helps keep the brain, heart, lungs and entire body properly oxygenated and healthy.  It is ordered after testing ordered by your healthcare provider and oxygen needs can change depending on activity level—resting, activity and sleep.  There are Durable Medical Equipment companies which provide oxygen.  People can and do travel with supplemental oxygen, working closely with their healthcare provider and airline.  Portable oxygen concentrators are now allowed by FAA on all flights that travel in the United States.

The COPD Support Groups, Hawaii COPD Coalition, the COPD Information Line, your Durable Medical Equipment companies, and your healthcare provider are excellent sources to learn more about supplemental oxygen.  There is also a lot of information available on-line.  Below is just a sample.

Great information about supplemental oxygen, including a very handy chart about various oxygen devices—includes concentrators, liquid oxygen, compressed oxygen, and a wealth of information from a user’s perspective with NO advertising.

SECTION 8 – Surgeries and other Procedures / Techniques

Sometimes, when all other treatments do not provide enough relief, there are some procedures and surgeries that can help reduce breathlessness and/or improve breathing.  These involve reducing the over-inflated portions of the lung through various means and/or lung transplant.  There are various resources on this topic and elsewhere.  These procedures are only performed in specialized medical centers and generally require pre-authorization and the patient meeting many requirements.  Your healthcare provider can provide more information about this.

SECTION 9 – Alternative & Complementary Treatments

Various techniques have been used with different amounts of success to improve breathing through non-medical means.  These include relaxation, acupressure, yoga, supplements, and various other methods.  Work closely with your healthcare provider before attempting any of these methods and keep a diary of how they affect you.

 

SECTION 10 – Advanced Care Directives

Every life eventually runs its full course and comes to an end.  There are resources to help patients and loved ones be sure that wishes are carried out to the extent possible.  Below are just a few of the resources available for consideration and reflection.  It is important to review wishes periodically so that they continue to reflect the beliefs and desires of all involved.

SECTION 11 – Multiple Conditions

Many with COPD have multiple health conditions.  When this occurs, it is especially important to be sure to coordinate care with all healthcare providers, as some medications may conflict with others, increasing or reducing potency.  It is important to fully review ALL your conditions and medications (including those over-the-counter and supplements) at least yearly with all your healthcare providers, as well as whenever you are given a new medication or ordered to stop taking a medication.

Resources for Employers, Policymakers, & Advocates

Many COPD patients are productive employees, contributing to the workplace and workforce.  It is projected that 6.1% of the workforce will have COPD by 2016.  Early diagnosis and smoking cessation are key to helping keep the workforce strong and healthy, and minimizing costs to employers and healthcare.

Two joint, concurrent Hawaii resolutions on COPD have already passed.  There are many national issues affecting COPD, including Medicare reimbursements for oxygen and much more.  There is some Hawaii data about COPD and lung health screening as well.  All of Hawaii Public Housing will be smoke-free in the near future.  Many other rules, regulations and laws affect tobacco and COPD as well.  Below are a few resources about COPD and information on how to get involved in Hawaii and national issues.
